how long before I can plant Jasmine?


I have two huge wisteria vines on my pergola. Unfortunately they are messy, invasive, and I just hate them. I want to grow Jasmine instead. But I want to plant them where the wisteria is. After cutting them down, how long should I wait to plant the Jasmine? What can I do to quicken this time? I don't have many options since its surrounded by stamped concrete and a deck.

Don't kill that vine! You might be able to sell it on Craigslist and have the buyer dig it up. You didn't say what part of the country you are in or what type of jasmine you intend to plant. I have Confederate Jasmine climbing a trellis at my NC beach house. It is not all that messy but it seems to be pretty invasive. If I am not diligent it tries to climb under the siding of the house. I think it grew a couple of feet in November! It smells great when it blooms though. I planted wisteria on a free standing trellis in another part of the yard a couple of months ago. The huge vines at the nursery, smaller than yours, were $200.

unfortunately, you would never be able to dig up a plant of that size and have it live

I don't want it to live. I want the wisteria to die, and replace it write Jasmine

Sorry arlo I didn't read your post at first. like mentioned it'll be close to impossible to dig that up. Not to mention I don't want to tear out the deck to do it. It's so tangled in the pergola too that I would have to cut everything off to move it.

I'm afraid that if I cut it down, I won't be able to plant anything in that exact spot for a few years.

Not unless you can somehow get the stump removed

Not sure if I'll be able to do a lot. I'm thinking of cutting down as far as possible. Drill several holes as deep as I can and apply vine killer liberally. Wait several months and hack away what I can. Wait a bit longer to let the roots rot more. Clean it out as best as I can, then plant.

Any other ideas to quicken the process?

Will the old roots pose a big problem for the new plant if I plant too quickly?
